Sharad Purnima is a harvest festival celebrated on the full moon day of the Hindu lunar month of Ashvin (September or October), marking the end of the monsoon season.

Sharad Purnima

Sharad Purnima is one of the most famous full moons in Hindu Calendar. It is believed that Sharad Purnima is the only day in the year when the moon comes out with all sixteen Kala. In Hinduism, each human quality is associated with certain Kala and it is believed that the combination of sixteen different Kala creates a perfect human personality. It was Lord Krishna who was born with all sixteen Kala and He was the complete incarnation of Lord VishnuLord Rama was born with only twelve Kala.

In many regions Sharad Purnima is known as Kojagiri PurnimaNavanna Purnima or Kaumudi Purnima.

Goddess Lakshmi Puja

Goddess Lakshmi is the Hindu goddess of fortune, wealth, and prosperity. She is the wife and shakti (active energy) of god Vishnu. Goddess Lakshmi wears bright red clothes with a golden lining and ornaments sitting or standing on a fully blossomed lotus which signifies the seat of divine truth. She has lotus bud in two of her hands, which stands for beauty, purity, spirituality and fertility. A cascades of gold coins are seen flowing from her hands, which represents her as goddess of  wealth. An owl is the carrier for goddess Lakshmi. Owl sleeps through the day and keeps awake during night. This denotes that if you want to attain success, you must remain awake when others are sleeping.

Two or four elephants are shown standing next to the goddess. They symbolise the royal power. Her four hands represent four goals of human life considered important to the Hindu Way of LifeDharma (duty), Karma (desires), Artha (wealth), and Moksha (liberation). Lakshmi is the household goddess of most Hindu families.

A special worship is also offered to goddess Lakshmi on the auspicious Diwali night.
